From The Advertiser

E'Deana Bosworth Elmer, whose family owned several towboat companies, took it on herself to record the history and status of Louisiana lighthouses in a self-published hardback, Lighthouses of Louisiana. The comprehensive book includes inland lighthouses such as Point Defer (Point Au Fer) in Atchafalaya Bay and the Tchefuncte River and those along the coast. She even includes lightships and the Hibernia Bank Building in New Orleans, whose light at the top helped guide ships up the Mississippi and the tower used to search for aircraft during World War II.

If anybody gets this book, can you write a review. Looks interesting.
